Easter Brunch Lasagna Recipe

Easter Brunch Lasagna Recipe

Ham, broccoli and hard-cooked eggs are terrific together in this unique brunch lasagna. I came up with the recipe for a family gathering. Muffins and fresh fruit are all I add to nicely round out the meal. -Sarah Larson, La Farge, Wisconsin
